Ambition in action…

The fishing on the East Coast of Australia is divided into fishing seasons. What happens offshore relates to these seasons which are dependant on the meanderings of the East Australia Current. The East Australia current unlike the usual current is really a series of giant eddies with smaller spin-off eddies moving down the coast. These eddies are fickle and move down the coast at their own rate sometimes affected by local weather as well as the  ‘El Ninio’ and ‘La Nina’ cycles.

OCTOBER The offshore water are starting to warm up . There are still the winter species around and it is a good time of year to target Yellowfin and Albacore. Mako’s and Blue sharks are around but as the current increases it becomes more difficult to drop on Browns. On the inshore and offshore reefs Kingfish will be takin up residence. We usually find schools of smaller generally undersized Kings close in to the rocks around the Heads.

Kingies anyone ?

NOVEMBER – The warmer water starts to move closer inshore. With it comes the first run of Mahi Mahi and  generally the bigger fish.  With the warmer water come the  Hammer Heads, Tigers  and Whalers to make life interesting.

Slimey Mackerel start appearing around the shelf attracting Marlin. We start seeing Striped Marlin first along with the occasional Spearfish  but as the water warms up the Blue Marlin appear.  We will on occasion also find the bigger Yellowfin Tuna  in the warmer currents.


DECEMBER –  The warmer currents continue to move in.  Generally towards the end of December and usually around Christmas or Boxing Day the first of the Black Marlin show up. The Blacks are generally small fish  but what they lack in size they make up for in numbers.

What I have described is a very general overview of what to expected on the East Coast of New South Wales. As I have mentioned the currents are very fickle so  finding the fish that travel in them is a matter of observation, perseverance and knowledge of what the currents are doing.

At Ambition, we offer fishing charters Sydney and surrounding areas, such as Port Stephens. Contact us today to find out more.

Several weather sites report on the currents and are well worth looking at.
